I wish to thank all at Leonard E Smith for the compassionate and caring way they dealt with every aspect of my father's funeral arrangements. Not only compassionate and caring, but also highly professional.

What could have been an ordeal, and a challenge, turned out to be seamlessly straight-forward. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

Thank you.
